commAn 85-year-old woman was hospitalized after the car she was riding in crashed into another car making a left turn at a Pembroke Pines intersection, authorities said.
The crash happened at Sheridan Street and Dykes Road as Sherryl Smith, 30, of Taft, attempted a left turn in a 2007 Nissan, said Sgt. Adam Feiner, of the Pembroke Pines Police Department. She had injuries that appeared to be major. She needed to be taken to a hospital, Feiner said. Smith was turning from westbound Sheridan Street to go south on Dykes Road. This is when she collided with an eastbound 2017 Toyota, Feiner said. Both cars were severely damaged.
Sherryl Smith and her passengers, Hannah Smith, and Andy Smith, also 87, are both from Miami Gardens. They were taken to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood. Hannah Smith sustained a major injury to the head. Sherryl Smith and Andy Smith were treated for minor injuries, Feiner said.
The driver of the Toyota, Amber Brown, 23, of Pembroke Pines, and her passengers William Lewis, 24, and two juvenile girls, were evaluated by paramedics on scene. One of the girls had serious enough injuries that she had to be taken by Fire Rescue to the hospital, Feiner said. The driver, Ms. Brown, had minor injuries and was being treated at the scene, Feiner added.
The crash was tying up traffic at the intersection, which is between Sheridan Street and Dykes Road. Motorists were being detoured as investigators remained at the crash scene.
